  • 1/2 cup (115 grams) butter unsalted
  • 2 cloves garlic crushed
  • 2 cups (462 grams) heavy whipping cream
  • 1 1/2 cups (150 grams) Parmesan cheese grated
  • 1/4 cup (29 grams) Gorgonzola (mild type of blue cheese) crumbled
  • Kosher sea salt & freshly cracked black pepper to taste


  1. In a heavy-bottomed saucepan melt the butter over medium heat. Add the crushed garlic and allow it to cook and infuse flavor for 30 seconds, reduce heat to low and add the heavy cream, simmer for 10 minutes. Stirring with a flat-bottomed wooden spoon occasionally. 

  2. While stirring slowly add in the Parmesan and Gorgonzola cheeses, a few tablespoons at a time, stirring between each addition so that the cheese melts evenly. Once the cheeses are incorporated into the butter and cream, continue to stir for 3-5 minutes. Until the cheese has fully melted and become velvety smooth. 

Recipe Notes

  • Alfredo can be reheated if needed: Add 1-2 TBSP of heavy cream to the cold Alfredo over low heat in a heavy-bottomed saucepan. Slowly heat and stir until cream incorporates and sauce becomes proper consistency.
